Into the Wormhole – Beth Daniels
INTO THE WORMHOLE: TIME TRAVEL, PARALLEL WORLDS,
ALTERNATIVE DIMENSIONS, and SPACE TRAVEL STORY WORLDS
Presenter: Beth Daniels, aka Beth Henderson
Wormholes are handy things…not for worms (well, yeah, maybe they are for worms) but for writers looking beyond our own humdrum existence. Humdrum because the real world can’t do the things, or go to the places, that our imaginations can. Taking science possibilities, ponderables, and possibly even impossibilities (though physics does cover a lot of things that are only currently impossible, not totally impossible), for an imaginary spin is what sci-fi and fantasy writers are all about. In 4 weeks we’ll travel down these imaginary wormholes to find our own story possibilities via Time Travel, Space Travel, Cracks in the Space Continuum, and journey forth into parallel worlds, alternative dimensions and, by following the footsteps of FARSCAPE in a way, into the farthest reaches of space. Think of the possibilities…of the impossibilities being made believable, thrilling, chilling, addictive.
About the Presenter, BETH DANIELS:
Beth Daniels spent 25 years writing contemporary and historical romance before taking her first leap of faith into science fiction and fantasy. Those first steps took her to Steampunk (as Nied Darnell), until she realized she was reading far more urban fantasy and stepped aside to write the first book in her Raven Tales series as J.B. Dane. But even before Steampunk or urban fantasy, she became fascinated with what could well be the future…the reality of time travel (without a TARDIS), of visiting parallel worlds, stepping into alternative dimensions, and of a way to reach those galaxies far, far away. A late blooming geek, she rarely finds a new science article that doesn’t hold the promise of a story within its borders.
